Spring Has Sprung!

There's nothing florists love more than spring! Sure, 14.5" of snow makes it seem like spring is never going to come- but it will, it always does! 

Here's a combo of daffodils, tulips, daisies and delphinium, accented with pussy willow branches.  I can't tell you how much I'm digging pussy willow this year.  In arrangements, bouts and of course the weeping pussy willow tree.  With spring, comes dirt, so I bring you the recipe for dirt dessert!

*Dirt Dessert!
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3-1/2 cups cold whole milk
  • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 package (18 ounces) cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
  • Shaved white chocolate, optional


  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes; let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Gradually stir into cream cheese mixture. Fold in whipped topping.
  • Spread 1-1/3 cups of crushed cookies into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Layer with half of the pudding mixture and half of the remaining cookies. Repeat layers. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Serve with shaved white chocolate if desired. Yield: 20 servings.
This stuff is honestly so good and so easy! I hadn't had it for years but recently made it for a party and it was a huge hit! Really, what's not to love???
